Friendly Friday Fill-Ins

Standard

Time for some filling in sentence fun.    This is a great blog hop co-hosted by two of our friends…………Miss Annie at McGuffy’s Reader and Miss Ellen at 15andMeowing.    All you do is fill in the blanks in the four sentences these ladies give us Hoppers every Friday – easy right?   It sure is, and if you visit all the Hoppers, you learn all kinds of stuff about each other from what they fill those blanks in WITH.   Yep – trust me.    Want to play along?    Click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s and LINK UP!

This week I decided that I – Teddy the Tiger – can fill in the blanks all by myself instead of letting Mom do them.    My fill-ins are in RED!

1. My favorite president is the president of whatever company owns the company that makes my cat food because I like my foodables a lot!.

2. This weekend, I have plans to sleep, eat, and play – not necessarily in that order.

3. I love my life, and my Mom and Dad.

4. I believe that it will be hard for me to lose weight even though my doctor wants me to and I’m on a DIET now!  BOOOOO.

 

Yep my friends – that #4 is true.  I had a vet appointment yesterday for shots and he had the NERVE to tell my Mom that I weigh too much.   I’m not even TWO YEARS OLD and I’m on a diet?   Well, the fact I weigh 20 lbs. already could have something to do with that I suppose.   Still, if I do lose weight maybe my Dad won’t call me Bubblebutt any longer and Mom won’t call me her little Teletubby (or Teletabby).     I’m now on a prescription diet food!     Sniff.   Oh well – I know I can do this!    I already get lots of exercise because my Mom and Dad play with me a LOT up and down three flights of stairs and with the red dot and walks in the yard but they can “step it up” and play even more with me.    I’ll LIKE that!   Let’s just hope I don’t STARVE.

This print my Dad bought a few years ago which he said reminded him of Angel Sammy NOW looks a

lot like me – at least with the SAD expression; not the SIZE of him though that’s for sure!!!!

Love, Poor Pitiful Me……..Teddy

Friendly Friday Fill-Ins

It’s Friday already – time to fill in the blanks in the four sentences we get every week from our co-hosts Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader.    It’s easy – we get two sentences from each of our hosts and we fill in the blanks in the sentences.   Then what?   Well, we visit everyone who’s linked up to the blog and see how THEY filled things in – amazing how much you can learn about people from some blanks in a sentence………besides, it’s lots of fun.    If you want to join in – just click Annie’s badge above – link up and VOILA.

Here are this week’s sentences and Mom is doing them this week as they are more “people” oriented – thank heavens I don’t pay taxes so can’t fill that one in AT ALL……!!    Mom’s fill-ins are in GREEN.

1. My Chinese zodiac animal is PIG – I adore pigs so I’m “good” with that!.

2. My zodiac sign is LIBRA and I am “right on” with much of what the standard Libra description says – for the most part anyway!.

3. Income tax season is something my husband deals with but we are LUCKY because we almost always break even – our tax people have us right on target apparently.

4. In hindsight, I can say without any hesitation that I have had a wonderful life thusfar – ups and downs yes but I rejoiced over the ups and endured the downs and here I am – still going strong as I head into my 71st year.   Grateful?  You betcha.

 

Thanks Mom!    I don’t know any of that stuff about signs and zodiac animals but I hope my sign is CAT – I’m getting good at being one I think!

Oh before I go, I know some of you read our Thursday blog where Angel Sammy gives us a photo to write a poem about every week?    Well the photo that Angel Sammy gave us yesterday for NEXT Thursday’s poetry inspiration was a cool photo and we thought it might make an even cooler puzzle.    So here’s a puzzle for those of you who enjoy jigsaws.   First the photo, then the puzzle.   Good luck!  You can post your time in comments if you like!

Time for all of us who join in this Blog Hop every week to FILL IN THE BLANKS!    This is a totally fun Hop too – co-hosted by our friends Annie at McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen of 15andMeowing.   It’s EASY too – just fill in the blanks in the sentences and join the hop (click on the badge above) – couldn’t be easier right???  Right!

My Mom is filling these blanks in this week…………her words are in BLUE!

 

1. The Winter Olympics are my FAVORITE Olympics sporting events – especially luge, ice dancing, bobsled, and ski jumping.

2. I think the most romantic movie (or book) is   “ALWAYS” with Richard Dreyfus……which is an older and not very well known movie but it tugs at my heart every time I see it.   There are so many others – this is just my current “romantic” favorite.

3. Recently, I had an odd experience when  I was about to call my sister and the phone rang and it was her calling me – actually this happens to us frequently!.

4. I believe that love  is forever…..even after LIFE stops.

 

OK Mom!   Thanks for taking over the fill-ins……….besides, I’m too young to be able to answer #2 – I’m not even two years old yet so what’s “ROMANCE” ?????????????????

Well, snoopervising you on this blog was exhausting Mom so I’m gonna do my SNOOZE THING!

Love, Teddy

Is It Friday Again?   Yes It Is!

Time to join in the Blog Hop co-hosted by Ellen of 15andmeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader……………each week we get two sentences from each co-host and they have blanks in them that WE must fill.    We wind up learning a whole bunch of cool stuff about each other.  Fun huh?   If you think so, join in – click the badge above and join in the fun.

Here are this week’s sentences and I told Mom she could answer – mainly because I couldn’t think of anything to fill in most of the blanks!    Mom’s fill-ins are in BLUE.

1. Trust ​ ​must be earned.

2. I would protest if PBS quit broadcasting – my husband and I love PBS’s nature, science, and mystery lineup – it’s the only TV we watch!.

3. I have so much more fun cooking meals since I retired years ago and have TIME to try recipes out.

4. Right now, I wish we could go on a vacation but it’s not exactly a good time – we prefer Fall not Winter.

 

Thanks Mom.    I prefer if you and Dad NEVER take a vacation again – when you deserted me last Fall for 3 days in Maine I didn’t think you’d ever come back and get me from the kennel!     They are nice peeps but there’s “NO PLACE LIKE HOME” !!!

Now if you’re tired of seeing my belly photos then don’t go any further because Mom just seems to have a major fascinating for capturing me on film when I’m napping on my back.   This morning here I was outside my Dad’s office (one of my favorite belly-nap spots) and she got me – AGAIN – and I didn’t wake up this time either!

All those quilts on the railing by the way were made by my Auntie Carol – Mom’s sister.   She’s “gifted” my Mom with LOTS of them through the years………..Mom moves then all around the house every time she does housecleaning – she calls it “quilt decorating” and it’s part of her Friday routine.

Also, sorry Mom didn’t put a flower or some other “modesty panel” over my manly bits but she figures they’re far enough away from the camera that nobody will be offended seeing me letting it all hang out.   WHOOPS!

Happy Friday!

Love, Teddy Bean

 

Friday Filling In AND Shopping!

Let’s Do Some Filling In!!

Today is Friday which means BLOG HOP time with our co-hosts Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader with their “fill in the sentence” Hop.    What a great way to get to know your friends right?    At my house though sometimes Mom fills in the sentences, sometimes I do, and sometimes we BOTH do…………today Mom said I could do it ALL BY MYSELF!

If you’d like to join in the fun – click the badge above and go to Annie’s blog – use the LINKY tool she provides and WHAM BAM HOWDY SAM you’re part of the Hop……………My fill-ins are in RED today.

1.The flu shot is one shot that I do NOT have to have since I’m a CAT – besides I get plenty of other shots because I AM a cat so it balances out!.

2. I think everyone should take their pet for a walk at least once daily.

3. I (almost) always wait for a passer by to ask them to put me on the bathroom counter for a sink drink, because I won’t go up on the counter myself.

4. I (almost) never  eat wet cat food because apparently wherever I lived my first year of life didn’t feed it to me so I only like kibble stuff.

 

About #4 above – my Mom has tried every possible type of wet food that there is and I absolutely won’t go beyond one or two licks of ANY OF IT.    Wherever I was before I was adopted they apparently only gave me water from a faucet and only gave me kibble to eat.    Mom has tried now for a year to get me to change those habits but I’m being ONE STUBBORN GUY!

I won’t eat wet PERIOD!

No that’s not a photo of me – I’m much cuter (!) – but I am very stubborn.     BUT – so is my Mom so I’m sure the “FOOD WARS” will continue.    She would rather I eat raw or wet and knowing her, this is a battle that could go on for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG time!

I love ya Mom but I EATS WHAT I EATS and THAT’S ALL THAT I EATS!!!!

 

Happy Friday everybody!    Tomorrow I’ll be cooking up some kind of bacon THING in my Castle Kitchen at Castle Baconia………..so I hope to see you then!

Now – let’s SHOP for Bacon’s Shopping Around The World Hop!

Even though tomorrow is my bacon day – TODAY is SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD with our friend Bacon so you won’t have to wait until tomorrow to get a recipe from me!!

Each month Bacon gives us a chance to share a recipe for something different – this month happens that he chose SANDWICHES as the subject of our recipe/information exchange and I am the KING of SAMMMICHES.    Of course I HAD to use bacon in my recipe contribution this month – but at least it’s a little bit different from the usual…………may I present:

Teddy’s Bacon, Cheese and Jalapeno Grilled Sandwich

Now the idea is that we share a recipe, give ingredients AND the costs of said ingredients so all of us will know what each other pays for the same stuff – wherever we might live!    That makes it more fun……!

Ingredients

8 slices of bacon (Harris Teeter Smoked Bacon, 16 0z. $4.49)

1/2 jalapeño chile, finely chopped ($.29 each)

1/4 cup butter, softened  (we had already)

8 slices country-style bread (Harris Teeter “Old Fashioned” bread – $.99)

12 oz sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced  (Cabot EXTRA sharp cheddar cheese 8 oz. $3.99)

This recipe is for making FOUR sandwiches but obviously you just “tailor” it to your needs – I personally could eat all four of these myself without sharing.   HAHAHAHAHA

To make the sandwiches all you do is cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from skillet to paper towel. Add chile to bacon drippings in skillet; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Place chile on paper towel.    Then just spread butter on both sides of each slice of bread. Top each of 4 bread slices with layer of cheese, chopped chile, 2 slices of bacon and another layer of cheese. Cover each with second slice of bread.   To finish the sandwiches up, heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sandwiches until bread is browned and cheese begins to melt. Turn sandwiches; cook until cheese is completely melted.

Talk about yummy – I take care of eating some extra bacon while Mom and Dad eat the sandwiches and sometimes have a cup of tomato soup with them………….everyone wins!!!!

Thanks Bacon for letting us all share prices, ingredients and recipes every month.  I can’t wait to see what our project is next month!

Lotsa Love, Teddy

Gettin’ Ready for Tomorrow!!!!

It’s Fill-In Time!!!!!

Time for the very fun Blog Hop co-hosted by Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and Ellen of 15andMeowing.    Each week each of our co-hosts provides two sentences with blanks for us to FILL-in.   Couldn’t be easier right?   And you know what?  Each week we learn more about each other just by “filling in”!    Want to join in?  Just click on the badge above and be transported to McGuffy’s Reader where you can do just that – simply fill in the linky tool and you’re IN!

Here are this week’s sentences…………………my Mom filled things in this week…………she used BLUE as her “color” !

1. I have never been able to knit or crochet – I just couldn’t sit STILL long enough to make anything!.

2. I wish I could still play piano – I took lessons for three or four years then we moved out of the country and I couldn’t take my piano with me and that was that.

3.  Sitting in front of a fire in the fireplace  is my ideal winter night.

4. Love  and marriage (go together like a horse and carriage!)
There you have it – four filled in sentences courtesy of my Mom.    Mom says #4 is from stealing words to an old song sung by Frank Sinatra……..she knows a lot of old songs.    I guess when you get older you know lots of stuff.   I hope I can be wise when I grow up!   I’m trying!
I guess that’s it for filling in this week……………….our thanks to Miss Annie and Miss Ellen for hosting this Hop for so long – it’s always fun.   You should join in if you don’t already!

Filling In Fun!!   A Cool Blog Hop

Have you tried filling in sentences on Friday?  You should.   This is a fun Blog Hop co-hosted by Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and it’s easy but cool at the same time.  It’s a super way of getting to know our blogging community friends better and just have fun sharing stuff about ourselves.     If you click on the graphic it will take you to McGuffy’s and you can enter your blog link so we can come to YOUR blog and see how YOU fill the blanks.    But for now – I’m going to show you how Mom and I filled them out.    Actually I’m letting MOM do them this week – they are more suited to a human answering than ME ME ME!   Mom’s fill-ins are RED.

 

1. I would like to ask God why there is so much suffering in the world – I know I shouldn’t question things like that but I really would like to know.

2 My favorite fast food restaurant is McDonalds – we don’t go to Fast Food places but I do go through McD’s drive-thru every three months after my quarterly dental visit as a TREAT and get French fries!.
3. If I could go to any concert of someone still performing, it would be Doobie Brothers – once a fan, always a fan .

4. My Winter pastime is usually closet cleaning and cabinet clearing, because  it’s too cold to go outside COMFORTABLY!
OK Mom thanks for that…………………If you think Dad doesn’t know about that “post-dental-visit” French Fry orgy you have every three months, you’ve got another think coming.   He finds the salt between the seats when he’s vacuuming out your Buick.   TEE HEE…………….
Big thanks to our friends at McGuffy’s and 15andMeowing for co-hosting such a fun Hop.     We will do this again next week along with all of you we hope!

I see you!!!!!!

Love, Teddy

Let’s Fill In Some Sentences OK?

Friday is here and that means that we will be pawticipating in our fun Friday activity of joining this blog hop co-hosted by Ellen of 15andMeowing and Annie of McGuffys’ Reader where we fill in blanks in sentences that they give us!    What’s fun about that?  Well we sure learn a lot of interesting stuff about each other – that’s what’s fun!     If you’d like to join in, click the graphic above and join by filling in the LINKY TOOL.   Simple as that – then fill in the sentences and visit everyone else who did.

Here are our four sentences for this Friday.    I’m going to try to fill them in myself (in green) but if I get stumped I’ll let Mom take over (in red)!

1. My guiding word for 2018 is FUN (I’m just a kid and all I want to do is have fun – especially playing with my Mom – the red dot, throw the ball, chase me around the house, it’s good exercise too!).

 

2. A house is not a home without LOVE and I get plenty of that around here!.

3. I look forward to turning TWO this year.  Then I’ll be all grown up right?   
 
4.  I really need to lose weight, because my Mom has a bad back and carrying me around or putting me on the bathroom counter for a drink is tough for her and my 19-ish pound body!!!!)
So there you have it – I’ve done ALL The filling in ALL by myself this week!  WHEEEEE!!!!!!!     How about you?  Have you done yours yet?   Thanks Miss Annie and Miss Ellen for doing this every week.

Who’s “BIG” – not me – I’m just a little kid – heck I’m not even TWO yet!

Time for the “Almost 2018” Friday Fill-Ins!

This is a super fun hop co-hosted by Ellen of 15andmeowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader and we just love it.   Every Friday each of our co-hosts give us TWO sentences with blanks to fill.   We get to share a little bit about ourselves and what we think when we fill in the blanks and that’s why it’s a FUN Hop!    Want to join in?   Click the badge above and go to McGuffy’s and sign up to join us.

I guess this might be another one of those fill-in Fridays where my Mom ought to do the filling in………….so I’m letting her…………and her fill-ins are GREEN today!

1. On New Year’s Eve, I will do what I always do – have a nice dinner with my husband, have a bottle of champagne with dessert, then go to bed EARLY – no parties or noise at our house – just a quiet start to a new year!

2. One goal I have for 2018 is to work on Teddy’s blog to make it more interesting and fun……I don’t want it to be boring for anyone!

3. In 2017, I accomplished nothing of note – I’m just grateful to be alive for another year so I guess I accomplished THAT!.

4. I lost my soul cat in 2017.   (but we adopted another sweet ginger boy who has healed our hearts!)

Gosh Mom – I’m glad to hear that – I  know you miss Sammy but I’m glad that I am helping you and Dad move on……………….as for me and this coming year – who knows – I just want to continue to be spoiled rotten and enjoy the fun of being a cat with you and Dad.   I’m not sure there’s anything that could make me happier!

 

Now for SHOPPING AROUND THE WORLD!

Another FUN Blog Hop and this one is all about FOOD and sharing recipes and prices from our area of the world!    My friend Bacon at PIGLOVE is hosting this one AND if you want to join in – share a recipe and see what stuff costs in OTHER places just click the badge above and let Bacon know you have posted a recipe on your blog.    This month’s challenge was to share a recipe for a dessert, cookie or other treat that we do for holidays.     My Mom makes spiced nuts for Christmas and she must have made about TEN batches of these (my Dad is hooked on them!). so I’m sharing that recipe which is EASY PEASY.

Mom’s EASY Cinnamon Spiced Nuts

Ingredients:

10 or 15 oz. can of Planters Mixed Nuts (unsalted or salted) – $6.26 (10. oz.)

1 tablespoon water (free!)

1 cup sugar (we had sugar)

2 teaspoons cinnamon – $1.89 for 2.57 oz.

1 teaspoon nutmeg – $4.99 for 2.47 oz.

One eggwhite

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a large cookie sheet (I used spray).    Beat one eggwhite until fluffy – add 1 tablespoon water and whip eggwhite again.    Add can of nuts and coat well.    In a small bowl mix together the sugar and spices then dump them into the nuts mixing well to coat all the nuts.    Put the nuts on the cookie sheet and spread out.    Bake the nuts 20-25 minutes, mixing the nuts on the cookie sheet a couple of times during the bake.    Take nuts out of oven and dump onto sheet of foil to cool.    VOILA!    Done!

These are quite addictive so WATCH OUT.

THANKS BACON for hosting this fun hop – gives us all a chance to share a good recipe AND see prices.    Can’t wait to see what our project is for NEXT month!

Woo Hoo!!!

Love Teddy

 

Today would have been my Dad’s 101st birthday…..Happy Birthday in Heaven Daddy – I will always be your “little girl”……Love, Pam

Fill-In Funzies!

It’s that day of the week for the HOP we love so much – and it’s co-hosted by our friends 15andMeowing and McGuffy’s Reader.    In fact, if you feel like hopping aboard this Blog Hop, just click McGuffy’s badge above then sign up on the LINKY form!   Easy – go for it and share your thoughts with the rest of us Hoppers.   Every week both of those blogs give us a list of four (two from each) sentences with blanks – and we have to fill in the blanks……this week’s four sentences are below – AND, I let my Mom fill them in this week!   Her fill-ins are in CHRISTMAS RED!

 

1. The best part of last week was finally starting my Christmas shopping – I’m later than usual this year for some reason!

2. The worst part of last week was not finding all the stuff I wanted to get for gifts on my first time “out” – that means more shopping next week……

3. Closet cleaning and kitchen cabinet clearing out is a Winter project that I will be working on.

4. A holiday gift that I always buy for someone is Christmas socks – that’s right – it’s just a personal tradition to give socks to SOMEONE on my Christmas list!
YAY!   Thanks Mom – I couldn’t figure out how to answer ANY of those questions – this is my very FIRST Christmas so I guess I’m having to learn about family traditions and stuff so I’m afraid I’m not good with Christmas questions.  All I know is that I’ve been very GOOD so no doubt I’m on Santa’s NICE list.
Actually I already got an early present from Santa – he dropped it off yesterday and asked Mom and Dad if they wouldn’t mind being his “Virginia Elves” and putting it together because they were SO busy at the North Pole right now.   Mom and Dad said “of course” and they thought it might take several days to put it together but it didn’t – it took an hour!    So I got to have it EARLY (Santa told them I could have it early if they finished it early).    Here it is:
Pawsome huh?    Well, know what?   So far I haven’t gone near it.   I want some time to get used to it being in my basement.   I’m a BIG BOY too and I’m not sure I’ll really FIT on that thing.   It’s six feet tall and the “condos” are nice sized – that big one I can definitely fit in and the perches I can put my buns on and stare out the windows but so far, even with the temptation of following the Red Dot, or snarfing up some treats on one of the platforms – I’m keeping my distance.    Mom and Dad have said that I just have to get used to SEEING it there before I’ll use it.    I’m not so sure…………I kinda like the hanging mouses and the rope……..guess I’ll just have to be brave and give it a whirl!     I don’t want Santa Paws to be disappointed in me since he brought it to me.
Have you done your “WISH LIST” for Santa?   Time’s almost up – you all better do a list – and make sure you stay on the NICE LIST too unless you want to get a bag of coal (Mom told me that’s what BAD kitties get but that’s silly…….coal????????).
See you tomorrow for BAKIN’ WITH BACON (Christmas Version)……………woo hoo!!
